Private Virtual Chocolate Tastings with EHChocolatier

Nothing brings people together quite like chocolate. With many of us gathering virtually these days with co-workers, friends, and family, guided virtual chocolate tastings are a fun, interactive and delicious way to connect and learn. It’s also a great virtual event for special occasions like baby showers, team bonding experiences, and holiday celebrations. Hosted by EHChocolatier Head Chocolatier, Sophie Frazier, participants receive a box of chocolates delivered to their home or office and a Zoom meeting link via email to join the tasting.

 

Virtual Chocolate Class Catalog

Chef’s Choice Tasting

Our Master Chocolatiers will assemble 12 bonbons for your private group featuring the freshest, in-season ingredients. It is a fun and delicious way to learn about what goes into making bonbons (what is ganache?), how different flavors are infused into the ganache, where the chocolate comes from, and tasting techniques. Along the way, we will have a lively “taste and describe” discussion, so be ready to find out how good your sense of taste is! This is an interactive class, so come with your questions.

Bar and Beyond

As chocolatiers, we make creations like bonbons, candy bars, and much, much more from chocolate that is sourced from “bean to bar” makers. Bean to bar makers take cocoa beans and roast and grind them into chocolate (ok, this is very simplified.) In this class, our selection of chocolate comes from the French bean to bar maker Valrhona. Valrhona is one of the leading producers of premium chocolate in the world. You will learn the origin of the chocolates being tasted, proper tasting techniques, and specifics about the flavors and how and why those flavors can change from year to year. In this interactive class, you will also compare solid chocolate tiles with a corresponding bonbon using the same chocolate for the ganache.

Your Chocolatier & Host

Sophie began making elaborate cakes for friends and family while studying at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design. She soon made the leap from visual artist to pastry artist with her diploma from the Culinary Institute of Canada in Charlottetown, PEI. With eight years of professional pastry experience, Sophie still loves nothing more than sharing her knowledge and (of course) chocolate. This led her to teaching classes in both cake decorating and truffle making. Since coming to EHChocolatier, Sophie has explored chocolate's endless possibilities as a creative outlet for both aesthetics and flavor. Sophie spends her time at home chasing her toddler and cats around with her husband. In any rare quiet moments, you can find her drawing and eating sweets.
